The Holloway Angle

The Holloway Angle contains short pieces of news, analysis and opinions on Process (including applications such as ERP, PLM and SCM) and Sensory devices (RFID). Some of this will not be completely thought out but instead I hope you will add value to my off-the-wall thoughts. It won't always be regular but please feel free to contribute to the debate. May the ping be with you!
